BOSTON (WHDH) - Crews were on scene in Dorchester Thursday afternoon after a police said a person was shot on Homes Avenue. 

Witnesses said the man was shot while driving and then crashed his car into a home. 

Boston police said both a crash and a shooting happened at the same address on Homes Avenue around 4:30 p.m. Officials had not confirmed whether the incidents were related as of Friday morning, though they said the person who was shot is expected to be okay.

SKY7-HD captured video of the crash site, showing damage to the car and a porch area at the three-story home that was hit. 

Evidence markers were later seen littering the ground in the area as people who live nearby explained what they saw and heard. 

“It was a few gunshots,” one person said. “I guess one of them was a crash that I didn’t realize until I stepped out and saw that the car was there.”

The same person said he saw two men running away and called 911. 

“People actually ran out of their houses to go down and help the guy,” the witness said. 

The area was blocked off for hours as officers and K9s combed the neighborhood for evidence. 

The building that the car hit had some structural damage. 

A bullet hole could also be seen on the passenger side door of the car as it was towed away. 

There were no reports of any arrests in this case as of Friday morning.
